2017 NASA Planetary Science Summer Seminar Applications Open

NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 29th Annual Planetary Science Summer Seminar, which will be held in one single session in summer 2017 (July 24 - 28 only) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.  

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback.  By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.

Applications are due April 3, 2017. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at  http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov.
